Application: Generating an audit record data file for a storage network transaction (Patent ID: US20240094906A1)

The patent filed by Pure Storage Inc. describes a method for auditing transactions within a storage network to ensure operational compliance. The method involves generating an audit record data file for each data access request associated with a transaction, storing these files in an audit object data log, and retrieving them for auditing purposes. The audit process includes verifying the correlation between audit record data files from different subsets of the transaction to determine if the transaction passed or failed the audit.

Furthermore, the patent outlines the selection process for auditing transactions based on various criteria such as the device involved, transaction type, or through a pseudo-random selection process. In case of discrepancies between audit record data files, the method includes determining the cause of non-correlation, checking for follow-up audit record data files, and providing reports on rebuilding, storage unit service, offline reports, or failure reports. The computing device within the storage network is designed to execute these auditing processes efficiently, ensuring operational compliance and data integrity within the network.
